Heartfelt gratitude to the wonderful nurses and staff at Rapha Residential Care in Gaston, S C, who provided excellent care and compassion. Our mother was a great inspiration and Christian testimony up until her passing. In life, we loved her dearly, in death we will love her still. In our hearts she will hold a place no one else will ever fill. We are assured she is with her Lord and Saviour and those who have gone before.
